The prevalence of a T. gondii infection seems to be highest in warm, humid climates at lower altitudes; it occurs less frequently in areas at the extremes of temperatures and at high altitudes. The two major routes of T. gondii transmission to humans are oral and congenital. Tissue cysts are found in a large percentage of meat used for human consumption, especially in lamb and pork. Vegetables and other food products contain a large number of oocysts. Exposure to cat feces also plays a major role in transmission of infection.
